Use Your Words 1.02 Patch

Hi Wordsmiths!

We've pushed a new patch and this one comes with a whole bunch of fixes and adjustments based on the feedback you've given us. So, here's what's changed:

New Content
First and foremost, we want to let you know that there are over 50 new prompts added in this patch including new Extra, Extras and Sub the Titles.

We realized the scoring sequences were long, especially during Sub the Title, so we have made a few format changes to really speed things up. Notably, you no longer have to watch the entire clip during the results phase.

Also, tutorials can be skipped by pressing "Enter" (or "A" on a controller) during Sub The Title and Survey Says.

We've also trimmed some of the longer VO that kept you from getting into the game faster.

House Answers
We know that some of you love the House Answers and we also know that some of you really don't. So, to that end we've added an option to the Settings menu to disable House Answers in your game.

Players can still use House Decoys, but they'll definitely be easier to spot.

Bugfixes & Touchups
We've also gone in and addressed a bunch of minor bugs and touched up some small things.

Thank you again for all of your support and we hope you enjoy the new update!

Use Your Words ships with 4 unique mini-games:
  • Sub The Title: Watch a short clip from a foreign film, then write your own subtitle! Fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 will love making the actors onscreen say whatever they want in a variety of monster movies, martial arts movies, and some just plain weird films from the past.
  • Blank-o-Matic: Fill in the blank to complete the sentence! Instead of waiting to have the funniest card in your hand, write an answer that matches your sense of humor! We've hired some of the funniest writers around to set up the jokes perfectly so that even Grandpa can crack off a zinger or two.
  • EXTRA, EXTRA!: Write a hilarious caption or clickbait headline for a ridiculous photo, in a take on the classic "caption this" game!
  • Survey Says: Go with your gut in this rapid-fire game show style "lightning round"!


  • 4 hilarious mini-games with tons of content!
  • Support for all HTML5-enabled devices!
  • "Family Mode" to filter out adult or otherwise controversial prompts!
  • A classy vintage soundtrack with songs by legendary composer Bob Thompson!
  • Hours and hours of playable content with more to come!
  • Up to 1000 spectators will be able to watch and vote for their favorite answers!

Note: This game is played locally, but remote players can play via stream or video conference.
